Rhodia Pencils Make Great Stocking Stuffers

Stephanie

Years ago, my Gram started up a tradition of giving us Christmas “socks” filled with little gifts like candy and trinkets. There would always be an orange in the toe sitting on top of the other matching sock.

Can you imagine a Christmas “sock” filled with pens, paper, pencils & art supplies? I sure can…

Do you have a similar sock/stocking holiday tradition of your own? What kind of things do you include, or wish would be included in your sock?

  1. I am laughing because my whole family is stationery obsessed and when my children were small their stockings always had new types of pens, pencils, and little notebooks. My son is 37 and we still compare new pens we have discovered.

  3. I’d love to find such supplies in my stocking, but alas, my heathen relatives think the pencil stolen from the local bowling alley and the notepad from the hotel nightstand “Work just as well”. Sigh.

  5. One year I cleaned out all pens with ink colors I knew I’d never use, random writing instruments gathered over time, the three pens left in a box, etc…and gave everyone a pen with a note attached that said

    “Someone like me has written magical stories and peace accords, love letters and speeches of liberation. My kind has composed music, doodled for inspiration, and sketched on trains travelling to far away lands. I am language and words and lines and curves and perspective; I am potential and possibility. I am useful and powerful and so are you. What can we create together that will make the world a better place for everyone?”
